Prevent duplicate records in Core Data & CloudKit?

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi there,

I'm hoping someone can help me.

I know that CloudKit doesn't allow the use of unique constraints, but in my SwiftUI IOS app, I wanted to have an entity with a couple of attributes that are not allowed to be unique, and I wondered if that were possible?

If this were a web app, I'd search the database for records prior to allowing users to save, but I can't figure out how to do that in SwiftUI's stateful way of doing things. There was a tutorial on hackingwithswift about doing dynamic FetchRequests that looked like it might work but I couldn't figure out how to apply it to my situation.

If anyone has any advice or code examples, that would be very helpful. Thank you.
